History

Ancient history

South Sudan was composed of ancient tribal lands.[3]

During the rule of Pharaoh, Sudan was part of the Egypt. Seti's tomb was located in modern-day Sudan, near to the border with Egypt.[4]

The Vampire Negus originated from Sudan, two thousand years ago.[5]

Modern Age

Second Sudanese Civil War

Starting in 1983, the Civil War with the north of the country, Muslim, turned South Sudan into killing fields, with two millions casualties, while women and children were regularly kidnapped and put into slavery, and the rest of people falling to starvation and to the lethal disease kala-zar.[3]

War in Darfur

Similar, government-sponsored "Janjaweed" (or "devils on horseback") carried bloody raids on the black villages, in a campaign of systematic genocide. Men were killed, women and children dropped to die in the desert. A.I.M. rescued the survivors, and offered them offering them food in exchange for them soothing their minds with Memetic Antibodies, an invention of Monica Rappaccini allowing to purge a psyche from religion, national and ethnic identities, preparing them for the world to come. As a Janjaweed group set in a bombed hospital frequently attacked A.I.M. supply convoy, Scorpion (Carmilla Black) was dispatched eradicate, as a loyalty test. Scorpion tried to force them to flee, but unwittingly detonated biohazard missiles, annihilating the racist raiders and rendering the area inhabitable for twenty years.[6]

The controversial Church of Hala (which had formed after the "return" of "Captain Marvel", in fact the Skrull Khn'nr), after a meeting between Church leader Julia Starr and "Captain Marvel" on where the Church's help would be the most helpful, started intervening in humanitarian operations in Darfur, notably in Al-Fasher.[7] Vision went for several weeks as an aid worker in Darfur, where he was a situation where vast intentional involvement was required, but little came.[8]

After a bombing from an unidentified origin at against a Church-owned warehouse killed twenty one members of the church (including Starr), "Captain Marvel" declared the end of all war, starting by attacking a nearby unidentified army base, destroying weapons though allegedly without a single casualty.[7] Afterwards, allegedly not a single shot was fired in the world for twenty-four hours, including in Gharb.[9]

The Sandbox was a 2nd-generation secret base, operated by Nick Fury, intended to serve as a staging area for activities in North Africa and the Middle East.[10]

As two aliens using tremendously powerful weapons fought in Earth's orbit, they were destroyed and their remains scattered upon entering the atmosphere. One such was detecting falling in the desert of Sudan. U.S. Sergeant Joseph Green was dispatched with a squad to beat Hydra terrorists at the retrieval of the fragment. The two groups fought over the target, in fact two the items: a Gauntlet and a sword. Using the gauntlet, Green defeated Hydra, but was unable to remove it afterwards.[11]

Secret Warriors

After S.H.I.E.L.D. was dismantled by H.A.M.M.E.R., some former agents founded the Howling Commandos Private Military Company (H.C. P.M.C.), and established their headquarters at Juba, a United Nations staging point.

Nick Fury came to Juba, recruited the H.C. P.M.C.,[12] and set with them the plans to attack The Dock, the Helicarriers landing port.[13]


Arno Stark's wheat farm in the Sahara Desert

Arno Stark used his advanced knowledge to work towards solving "World Hunger". He developed a new strain of wheat that could grow in the Sahara Desert and set a wheat farm there. It was speculated that is could feed villages along the Sudan.[14]

During the Cotati invasion of Earth the Wakandan Hatut battled Cotate archers, south of Khartoum.[15]

Hydra was active in Sudan,[11] as well as in South Sudan, where it collaborated with Sudanese militants.[17]

The government-sponsored "Janjaweed" (or "devils on horseback", though they also use helicopters) carried bloody raids on the black villages, in a campaign of systematic genocide. Men were killed, women and children dropped to die in the desert.

A.I.M. rescued the above mentioned survivors, and offered them offering them food, but only in exchange for them soothing their minds with Memetic Antibodies, an invention of Monica Rappaccini allowing to purge a psyche from religion, national and ethnic identities, preparing them for the world to come. As a Janjaweed group also attacked A.I.M.'s convoys, they dispatched Scorpion (Carmilla Black) to eradicate them.[6]

International

From their headquarters in Juba, the Howling Commandos Private Military Company (H.C. P.M.C.) (composed of former S.H.I.E.L.D. agents) prepared with their employer, Nick Fury.[13]

Notes

  • Sudan is a real-life country.
  • The Republic of South Sudan achieved independence from the Republic of the Sudan on 9 July 2011, though that event has not been addressed in comics or handbook so far, despite Uncanny Avengers #8 and #9 (May 8, and June 19, 2013).
  • It is sometimes stated that Marc Spector began being affiliated with Khonshu in Egypt,[2] though the Tomb of Pharaoh Seti was located in Modern Age Sudan (which was formerly in Egypt).
